Five things about me and you, questions from DKoren.

1. Leave me a casual comment of no particular significance, like a lyric to your current favorite song, your favorite kind of sandwich, or maybe your favorite game. Any remark, meaningless or not.

2. I will respond by asking you five personal questions so I can get to know you better.

3. Update your blog with the answers to the questions.

Answers to the questions I was asked:

What's the most rewarding thing about being a mom?

The way Daniel smiles wider when he sees me than for anyone else, like I'm the sun shining in the center of his universe.

If you could visit only one fictional universe, which would it be and why?

Ow, tough question! Um, probably Angel, cuz it's a really rich universe with lots to explore, and Angel totally needs a hug. Lots of them, in fact.

What's your next favorite Shakespeare play after "Hamlet" and why?

"Much Ado About Nothing" because it's got a lot of levels, it's a comedy that has actual bad guys, and I love the character of Beatrice -- she doesn't go all weirdly submissive like Katherina in "Shrew," she stays strong and opinionated even after falling in love.

What's your most listened to song?

Ever? Probably "If Every Day Were Like Christmas" by Elvis. I listened to that a lot as a kid and still repeat it a few times at Christmas now.

Lately, it's been "While My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms" by Bon Jovi cuz it works for writing Marc d'Yae.

Name a talent you wish you had (can be crazy!).

I wish I could play the drums!


  1. If you could visit only one fictional universe, which would it be and why?

    Ow, tough question!

    This is funny cuz it's so terribly easy for me. I wish I could see Ringworld. Every now and again I walk outside, look up, and wish I could see what it looked like. I don't think I'd ever get tired of seeing it.

  2. Ahh, but that's you -- I live in over 20 fictional universes, and having to pick only one? Eeep!

  3. I forgot to respond to this when you posted about your cool answers. I haven't seen "Much Ado" since the Ken version came out in the theatre... need to rent that one again!

    Tried to find those songs on youtube, as (naturally) I haven't heard either, but failed.

  4. I found links for you :-) "My Guitar Lies Bleeding in My Arms" is here, and "If Every Day Was Like Christmas" is here.


Agree or disagree? That is the question...
